    56 songs qualify to vie for Oscar - The Hollywood Reporter 12/9/06

    56 songs qualify to vie for Oscar

    Fifty-six songs from eligible feature-length motion pictures have qualified to vie in the best original song category at the 79th Annual Academy Awards.

    Alphabetically, they range from "Believe It" from the Heart of the Game" to "You Know My Name" from "Casino Royale."

    Both the musical "Dreamgirls" and the animated film "Over the Hedge" placed three songs each. The original tunes from "Dreamgirls" that qualified are "Listen," "Love You I Do" and "Patience," while "Hedge" will be represented by "Family of Me," "Heist" and "Still."

    And "Borat" earned a spot on the qualifiers' list with its mock national anthem "O Kazakhstan."

    On Jan. 16, the Academy will screen clips featuring each song, in random order, for voting members of the music branch in both Beverly Hills and New York City. Following the screenings, members will vote to determine which three, four or five songs become nominees in the category.

    To be eligible, a song must consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film. A clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film or as the first music cue in the end credits.
